When we can hitch our high-yield wagon to cutting-edge growth industries, it makes investing for income that much more exciting, asserts Bryan Perry, editor of Cash Machine.
Much of the future for domestic energy use is being leveraged in the renewable energy sector, where vast sums of money are being allocated to drive down operational costs and provide for a cleaner environment.
Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital (HASI) is central to this investment theme.
This real estate investment trust provides debt and equity financing to the energy efficiency and renewable energy markets in the United States.
The company offers energy efficiency products that reduce a building’s or a facility’s energy use or cost.
Its renewable energy projects deploy cleaner energy sources, comprising solar and wind, to generate power production.
The company qualifies as a real estate investment trust for US federal income tax purposes. It is one of the most exciting income and growth plays I know.
In the second quarter posted on August 3rd, the company earned 32 cents per share, 2 cents above estimates on a 23% rise in net profit.
Revenues for 2017 are expected to come in at $41.19 million, up 27.50% over 2015, and are expected to rise by 39.20% to $57.32 million for 2017.
The HASI portfolio totaled $1.4 billion on June 30th, 2016, and included $400 million of energy efficiency investments, $972 million of renewable energy (wind and solar) transactions and $19 million of other sustainable infrastructure investments.
With the kind of growth the company is displaying, dividend growth will be consistent and the stock price should keep on rising with each quarterly earnings report.
The REIT pays a current dividend yield of 5.45%. This is an exciting investment opportunity; buy HASI under $23.Cash Machine
